Walter is a rare breed of a renaissance man who has—to varying degrees of competence—flown airplanes, hang-glided, skydived, bungee jumped and sailed. Having failed to break anything more severe than several bones in his face and neck during these efforts, he also enjoys riding a constantly varying stable of motorcycles at speeds best characterized as enthusiastically free-spirited. Walter loves and hates college football in equal measure, and he adopted an English Premier League side for whom he would happily traverse the Abyss if it brought his dear Magpies glory. Away from his sporting interests, Walter enjoys spending preposterous sums spoiling his pound-found pit bulls Lola and Stella, and incurring accidental self-inflicted blunt force injuries and electrical burns in his garage when pursuing his latest great idea without the burden of reading any instructions, ever. He holds bafflingly wrong-headed takes on virtually every corner of popular culture, but he usually also has a preponderance of the high scores at his local arcade.
